Question about LG Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Lg's last software update apparently to improve network security may be responsible for the problem I am having. When the tv is turned off or into standby it looses the password etc. for the SSID. Every time the tv is turned on the network password ( a long and difficult one to remember!) has to be re entered and the network set up again. I have tried setting the network up manualy instead of just choosing the SSID from the detected list but this does not work either.Hunting through the internet it seems to be a widespread problem following the last security software update. I have contacted lg but they are not very helpful saying there might be a bug in the update and suggesting I try a full factory reset which I don't want to do yet.Does anyone have any suggestions and can lg's last software update be undone? Any ideas gratefully received.

Memory loss in an electronic device can be caused by an empty backup battery. I'm not sure this is the cause in your TV, but I think I'm close.
I do't think a software update can cause this.
Please try to google on the brand and also the model name and put in the line something like looses settings when switched off. Perhaps on some fora, the already posted the answer.
Not knowing your model number or name, kept me from trying this on google.

    You are adding some extras to an already complex problem. By reading again and again, perhaps I was to quick with my first answer. I have to do a little more research before I come back on this one.

I cant get amazon prime on my LG tv set. I have Panasonic blue-ray player.can you help,thank you.


Have you tried to update the firmware on your LG? I know there has been issues recently with LG brands not being updated and in turn, not recognizing it.

To update the firmware on your LG Smart TV:
  1. Press the Settings button on your remote.
  2. Go toSupport > Software Update > Check update version.
  3. When the latest version is found, select Update.

Your TV will restart once the update is complete.

Tip

Secure and clean computers


Everyone wants a fast, clean and secure computer.
The bare Minimum you will need are...
Anti-Virus software (AVG free or microsoft security essentials)
AntiMalware software (Malwarebytes is my favorite)
System cleanup software (CCleaner is great)
Software Firewall for windows xp (vista/7's firewall is much improved)
But you may like to use one anyway(Comodo/pctools)

You may also like a seperate defrag program. Auslogics is great and fast.
I use both I.E and firefox browsers, but Firefox is the most secure of the 2.

Download what programs you need and install
Boot into safe mode with networking (to allow updates) F8 on boot up
Go into system restore and turn it off (lots of nasties can hide there) you can get to it thru start/programs/accessories/system tools)
Update and fully scan with antivirus and then antimalware programs
Make full use of CCleaner. Run cleaner. run registry cleaner, go to tools menu and uninstall everything you really dont need, click on startup and delete everything not needed.(if unsure google the entry and look for advice on if it is needed)
At the moment i only have these programs in my startup folder. Antivirus/sound card/graphics card... and thats it.

Hopefully this will keep you safe and secure, you may if you wish turn the system restore back on.

I'm not familiar with the model but most modern TVs have the ability to update whether by direct Ethernet, wireless or by USB transfer which has been downloaded on a PC and moved to a pen drive. If you don't want to update your TV then I'm quite sure there will be an option in its menu where you can switch this feature off. In response to your other question, you don't have to update your TV but usually the update will be an extra feature, a fix or maybe an enhancement that the manufacturer has decided will improve the TV.

How do I set security on my DWL-952


There are 2 possible areas raised by this question. The first is a security patch needed to fix the firmware of your router, which by the way is not dwl-952. Your router is a di 954. Dwl 952 is a bundled router and network interface. The details of the firmware update are below.

Security patch for your D-Link router
These firmware updates address the security vulnerabilities in affected D-Link routers. D-Link will update this continually and we strongly recommend all users to install the relevant updates.
As there are different hardware revisions on our products, please check this on your device before downloading the correct corresponding firmware update. The hardware revision information can usually be found on the product label on the underside of the product next to the serial number. Alternatively, they can also be found on the device web configuration.
Please make sure you follow the firmware install guide provided within the ZIP firmware package.
DI-524 Revision E1/E3Thu, 28/11/13
The new firmware 5.13b01 that fixes the security vulnerabilities
DI-524 Revision Ex 5.13b01
Please note: please unzip the file and use the file DI524Ex_FW513B01.bin to update firmware.
DI-524UP Revision A1/A2Thu, 28/11/13
The new firmware 1.08b02 that fixes the security vulnerabilities
DI-524UP Revision Ax 1.08b02
Please note: please unzip the file and use the file DI524UPAx_FW108B02.bix to update firmware.

The second possibility is to set the local security on your network.

From the wikipedia page:
Wireless security is the prevention of unauthorized access or damage to computers using wireless networks. The most common types of wireless security are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). WEP is a notoriously weak security standard. The password it uses can often be cracked in a few minutes with a basic laptop computer and widely available software tools. WEP is an old IEEE 802.11 standard from 1999 which was outdated in 2003 by WPA or Wi-Fi Protected Access. WPA was a quick alternative to improve security over WEP. The current standard is WPA2; some hardware cannot support WPA2 without firmware upgrade or replacement. WPA2 uses an encryption device which encrypts the network with a 256 bit key; the longer key length improves security over WEP.
The complete article is here

Wireless security

Log in to your router and find the wireless security section. Set up the security model that best suits your needs and then set up your wireless network card with the same information.

Hi Robert, my name is Cheri Torres and I work on the Social Media Team at DISH. It sounds like your remote is experiencing IR(Infrared) interference from your LG TV. You can resolve this issue by converting your TV1 remote to UHF(Ultra High Frequency) instead of IR. In order to do this you will need a UHF remote, the 20.0 remote is only an IR remote. Please email me directly at Cheri.Torres@Dish.com with your account number or phone number on the account so that I can look into getting a UHF remote sent out. Thank you.

Since you posted this four months ago, there has been some major updates from NComputing to improve the USB architecture. This should improve support for peripherals such as your printer. Download the latest software for either W2K3 (v4.9.5) or W2K8r2 (v6.1.3) and update your system. Lastly, it is critical, and I mean absolutely critical, that you update the firmware on the L300 as well. The firmware is included with the vSpace update so once the host is updated, go to the L300 and tell it to update the firmware. The current firmware version that works with v6.1.3 or v4.9.5 is v1.4.1. As of this writing, 8/16/11, those are the current versions.

I'm sorry to hear you are having audio issues with your receiver. Do you know what type cable you are using from your TV to the receiver? Unless you are having problems with updating the software for the receiver, it is automatically updated each night at 3 AM. If you have a 722 receiver, the latest software version is L 6.74. You can press your Menu button on the DISH remote twice to bring up the System Info screen. About 5 lines down from the top, it will show the software version. If it is anything other than L 6.74, it needs to be updated.

If the software is current, you can unplug the receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in. After it reboots (takes about 5 minutes), see if you have the same problem. You can also check the cable from the TV to the receiver to make sure it is secure - check both ends. If you have any other problems, please post your request to this site. I hope this helps.

hi wendy, I have the same model tv and it has been doing exactly the same problem you have ever since buying it (2007 - 08) and every time it does freeze it seems to be on channel 9. The only way i overcome this problem is to turn the tv off at the wall for atleast an hour and turn it back on and it seems to re-set itself or should i say the built in set top box re-sets itself and it works fine for a few months and bang it does it again. Apparently there is a LG software update but only technicians can install this. Anyway thats my story! :)
